Message from the External Vice President

Dear Brothers,

We face a unique and pivotal time in our organization. We have an opportunity as brothers to rise up and elevate our entire organization; to bring Lambda Phi Epsilon to the next level of fraternal advancement; and to ensure long-term success as a thriving brotherhood. We come together to develop our organization, celebrate our brotherhood and improve each individual member. Convention XXVI will serve to be the platform upon which we usher in a new era with a better and stronger fraternity. Let us come together, celebrate our past accomplishments, and the future we have yet to build.
